How can the Nutrisystem weight loss program promote cardiovascular health?

A reduction in excess weight generally contributes to improved heart health. The Nutrisystem weight loss program, which assists customers in losing weight by following a proven, balanced plan, supports that goal.

The Nutrisystem weight loss program further promotes heart health by providing meal plans that are low in total fat, saturated fat and cholesterol; contain no trans fats; and meet the USDA’s recommended sodium intake level of 2,300mg/day for the general population. For those who need to further reduce their sodium intake, customized meal plans are available that contain as little as 1,500 mg of sodium a day.

You can also contact the Nutrition and Dietary Services Department at 800-585-5483, ext. 1341, for assistance with customizing a low sodium meal plan (800-585-5483, option 3).
